Embroidered Portrait #3

Introduction: Embroidered Portrait #3

About: I'm just a lady who likes making stuff. I got my degree in engineering but also enjoy cooking, sewing, knitting, gardening and backpacking, among other things.

We had another secret santa gift exchange so I stuck with the embroidered portrait using the same technique that I used for this guide.  I made some changes to the original photo while making the pattern to make it easier to embroider, mostly just taking his hand out.

    Your Instructable creations have totally inspired me to embroider! I am currently working on turning a picture of my friend's dog into an embroidery for her birthday. I will post it on my page and you should check it out. Also, I followed your instructable "turn a photo into an embroidery" and recently stitched one of Dave Matthews face (who my sister loves) haha. Thank you so much!

    Thanks! Yeah, you can do a lot with embroidery! I've seen some really complex embroideries that look like paintings!
